Democrats say the burden is on President Donald Trump to help break the stalemate after he rejected a bipartisan proposal to shield young illegal immigrants from deportation and ignited anger by reportedly disparaging Haiti and African nations.

Durbin, the No. 2 Democrat in the Senate, told reporters that he believed Miller had played a role in convincing Trump to blast the bipartisan deal. “Nothing is really going to get done until the principles are negotiating face to face”.
The individuals spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to describe the meeting publicly.
